Came to Tisfris with a recommendation from Lonely Planet as we were visiting Rembrandt house and the nearby flea market.

This light and airy cafe provided a great meal and the staff were really friendly and helpful. We went in for lunch - we chose a mixture of sandwiches, burgers (including the veggie burger) and a Dutch mashed potato dish (stamppot). Every plate was cleared!...More

Seating on bridge next to the Rembrandt House. Great pancakes and coffees, beers and snacks. Good view of canal, even better view of the thousands of bikes passing over the bridge.

Seating available inside and out. We were fortunate to visit twice on our journey. Excellent rose mint tea. Very good hot chocolate. Had a very good lunch also. Sandwiches are freshly made. Good service. They only take euros, no cards. Nice spot for people watching.

Thank you. That's great to hear!

Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of
tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists
and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the
best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe.
Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops
of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones
Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods
such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring
